Peck Family Deeds - Delaware County, NY

Linda Ogborn helped me recently with my PECK research by sending me photocopies of four handwritten PECK wills. I have transcribed them and would like to share them with others. I have used the original spellings here, that is, fs for ss. I had trouble with the names of some of the witnesses, for instance, the one whose first name I gave as Gonny. Could not tell what the first letter was. - Jayne Szaz, September 18, 1999
